Gentle Giant DC's Regional Manager, Matt Packebusch, is the type of Giant you want to have on a long, challenging day. Since joining the company in 2006, Matt has consistently demonstrated extraordinary strength and skill, as well as a sense of humor that instantly lightens the mood and creates an atmosphere of fun for both the crew and customer.
Matt was once tasked with moving a nine-foot, 1,200-pound Grand Piano up two flights of stairs on a Friday, then back down the following Monday. Despite the challenge, he considers this one of the best days on the job he’s ever had. In addition to the bond it created with the crew, he said the look of amazement and gratitude from the customer was like none other.
Outside of moving, Matt enjoys Crossfit, practicing karate and playing rugby.

When Kieffer started with Gentle Giant’s DC office, he quickly established himself as a leader. As a lifelong basketball player, he was prepared for the hustle, teamwork and focus expected of a Giant. Now a manager, Kieffer thinks of himself more as a coach, working with new Giants to help them reach top performance.
As is the case in every regional office, Kieffer and his team preach and live a healthy lifestyle, and have repeatedly been recognized as the Healthiest Employer in DC. Outside of work, Kieffer enjoys traveling, playing basketball and working out with his fellow Giants.

Upper Marlboro, MD Move
For starters we got two great guys Nate and Elmer. Very pleasant and eager to please our every request. You could tell they are a good team. We have used your company three times in one yr and have highly recommended your company. Our son even bought and moved into a new home few months ago. We urged him to call GG…. because of closing date changing he ran out of time. He used a different company and it was awful experience. ALL three moving jobs your company has done for us have been executed professionally and kindly. Nate and Elmer remembered us and handled everything just wonderfully. We will always use GG. And never one broken scratched or damaged item out of all the moves!

We loved our crew out of DC. Donny and his two brothers worked their tails off all day on a somewhat difficult move. They even had the patience to help me disassemble the treadmill and get it in our new home. As a former gentle giant (over 10 years ago) I was thrilled to see that the guys still have the same work ethic and high standards. Very happy with the move!

We were impressed with the efficiency of our entire crew, from packing, to loading, to moving into our house. They packed everything with care and were professional throughout our entire move. They were on time and provided updates letting us know when they were 25 minutes away (and on unloading/delivery day they let us know their ETA ahead of time and kept us up to date).

I contacted GG for a client. There were many many back and forth questions. Ed and Carrie were very patient and helpful.
We experienced damage to a tableTop through no fault of moving Crew And so far that was handled very well. Shipment has not been shipped yet so we still need to see the conditions on the other end and total cost.

Each of the “Gentle Giants” who assisted in our move (7 total) were outstanding professionals who worked quickly but safely throughout the entire process. We could not have asked for more.
I also want to give a shout out to Jackie Soper who was fantastic at helping navigate the entire process, from beginning to end. Her responsiveness, professionalism, and overall kindness was very much appreciated, as was her willingness to work directly with my office to handle the billing/payment. Three cheers for Jackie!

My Google review:
Moving is stressful already, and thanks to COVID it can be anxiety-inducing. Gentle Giant were highly communicative, accommodating, and reassuring through the entire process — including before we even decided to choose them.
Our movers were Dex and Dakarai, two good guys who carried our boxes and furniture down two flights of stairs to pack, and up at least one — sometimes two or three — at the destination and never seemed to struggle with any of it. They wore masks at all times except when packing and unloading (which is perfectly reasonable) and kept their distance. Moving can be a grueling, dangerous job and we have nothing but gratitude for Dex and Dakarai. Further still, Gentle Giant’s expected rate was already quite reasonable, but the guys got it done so quickly the final cost was just a bit over 50% of the expected cost.
Moving sucks, but Gentle Giant removed a lot of the stress, and I’m always astonished by people who manage to do such tough labor on a regular basis.
